Laboratories and Research Groups
Laboratories and research groups have a mandate to facilitate the development of an emerging field and to ensure a broad scope by means of a communication project based on a team that includes researchers and students. Such an approach allows us to secure the expertise of researchers, teaching and the training programs.
Laboratories and research groups actually attract students who are already interested in these areas or potentially interested due to participating in exchanges and activities which take place. Their mandate is also to project throughout the Faculty and even beyond through seminars, guest researchers and collegial interactions. Finally, the team work that takes place is promising for future applications for grants from funding agencies.
